Successful Cleveland Medical Malpractice Attorneys Offer Compassionate Legal Support for Children Suffering Birth Injuries From Use of Forceps

We hold negligent care providers accountable

Every year, an estimated 1 in 20 babies is delivered with assistance from forceps, a controversial tool used during difficult deliveries to grasp the baby’s head and guide the baby through the birth canal. In the right hands, forceps can be a life-saving tool. Unfortunately, in the wrong hands, or when used improperly, forceps can lead to significant injury to the baby or the mother. The Ohio medical malpractice attorneys at The Eisen Law Firm leverage years of experience to help families pursue compensation for injuries resulting from improper use of birthing tools.

Controversy surrounds the use of forceps during childbirth

Used properly, forceps can be a life-saving tool that leaves minor bruising around the baby’s head. In most cases, the bruising fades within just a few days.

Unfortunately, when used improperly, forceps can cause significant harm to both the baby and the mother. Common injuries to babies resulting from improper use of forceps during birth include:

Mothers are also at risk during forceps assisted deliveries. Vaginal tearing, bladder injuries, uterine rupture, anemia and other conditions may have a lasting and painful impact.
